So, i finally got some time to put up some picts of what ive been working on over this past winter.  Since I have a lot of junk vehicles and parts laying around I decided to build a truck for skidding wood.  I plan on using the following parts:
  • 1943 dodge WC52 frame and front pto winch with 1953 Power Wagon body
  • 4.0L motor from my 83 CJ7 (originally from a 95 cherokee) mated to:
  • Jeep T18 with PTO for front winch mated to a  Dana 20 T-case
  • Divorced Ford NP205 with PTO for rear winch
  • High pinion Dana 60 front and Dana 60 Rear from my 79 F350
  • Wrangler leaf springs for the front, Coil Rear
  • Big braden pto winch for the rear (12klb) pull
  • Hummer H1 bead locks with some tire in the 38 to 44" size range

Everything is subject to change but this is the current game plan.

As we discussed in the last club meeting, I'd like to plan for a Rausch Creek Ride the weekend of April 9th.  Please post if you're interested.  Also, let me know what days you'd like to wheel.  I'd consider taking friday off if anyone is interested in wheeling Friday.

This ride is open to anyone, including non-club members.   You can send an email to for contact info.

I would say good idea going with what Tim said that's what he does and we have proof.

The more i thought about it, that axle outters must be forged.  There's no way a cast piece could support all the weight of the wheel bearing - it would be too brittle.  I just used a 7014 stick to weld it up.  I was going to use the nickel rods to weld the center section to the tubes, but Tim talked me out of that too.  I preheated and used regular MIG wire.  Then I wrapped it in a blanket and let it cool slow.  Nothing cracked, the welds look good.

The welding rod I was talking about at the meeting is 309-18 its the same thing as Lincoln Iceberg just a 1/4 of the price. I used this for welding my UCA mount to my rear axle it works great but its only good for horizontal position and you can only weld in short beads of 1" tp 1.5" then peen the area

1996 XJ for sale that is a beast of a trail rig
The bad is that the drivers side door has a broken off top hinge (I welded it but my skills are substandard and it broke again) and something loosened up in the front end the last time I went out to Nibs, looks like the LCA (it has aftermarket RE's for tire clearance), but pops like a ball joint. I wanted to fix this and get what it was worth, but went to school before I could get to it.
The good, It only has about 130k on it (rough guess, I changed the stock cluster to a sport cluster with a tach and still have the stock that reads 115xxx I will include), 4.0 with AW4 and NP 231J, corp 8.25, 3 inch RC lift with custom rear spring pack, and grill guard
This jeep comes with an extra Corp 8.25 for the rear. There is also a complete set of chopped 31's (Cooper Discoverer ATR's) I will toss in, it's sitting on mismatched 33's. I also have a NP242 (177xxx) i will include, the condition of the internals in unknown, I scrapped the jeep it came out of because the frame rotted.
Steve at 315-289-5105 or
$1250 obo
